Director - Office of Government and Community Relations 

Pace University 


Whoever said politics is in your blood must have been talking about Cynthia Delfino. The Delfino family has over 100 combined years of public service to Westchester-based initiatives at various levels of government. Cindy's father, Joseph Delfino, is the mayor of White Plains, her Uncle Carl was also an elected official, and her Uncle Ralph served in the courts.

From 1996 to 1999, Cindy served as village administrator for Tarrytown. She was responsible for the daily operations of the full service village with its population of 11,000. Prior to that she served as assistant village manager in Briarcliff Manor.

She is currently director of the Office of Government and Community Relations at Pace University where she acts as a liaison to government and community leaders, working for the office of the university president and is a member of the University Executive Council.

She is president of the Beechers Homeowner Association in Peekskill, vice president of Public Relations for
Putnam Speaks!, Toastmasters International, and an executive committee member of the United Way of the Tarrytowns.

During her time at Mercy, where Delfino earned her bachelor's of science in Business Administration in 1982, she gained an understanding of the importance of networking, which she has applied repeatedly in her career. In 1987, she took a Master of Public Administration degree from Pace University.
